understands the choice they have to make. >> chris: governor romney plans to make a major foreign policy speech in next two days. do the two of you think the president engaged in a cover-up in his and the administration's explanation of what and at the u.s. consulate in benghazi. >> i'll let others decide that, there are democrats and republicans in congress calling for an investigation, as we need to have. the response was slow, confused, inconsistent. they first said that it was a youtube video and a spontaneous mob and now we know it was a planned terrorist attack. if this was one tragic incident that would be a tragedy in and of itself but it is part of a biure of the fact the obama foreign policy is unraveling, literally, before our eyes and our tv screens and, what mitt romney is going to do, is lay out a very different vision for foreign policy. one, that is a policy of american strength versus what i articulate or claim the president's policy is one of weakness, we are seeing the ugly fruits of the obama foreign policy unravel around the world on our tv screens, syria, 20,000 dea
the worst economy since the great depression and now we're seeing our foreign policy collapse around the world, they tend to be independent voters anyway and they tend to focus on the debate. the debates are significant, and i would agree with that? is it pretty clear that if governor romney is writing op-eds 48 hours before that's supposed to be about economy and domestic policy that he's trying to send a signal to jim laird that he wants libya brought up? >> i don't think he's going to mind if libya's brought up. it's a collapse of our foreign policy. really what we're seeing -- >> you say a collapse of foreign policy. well, go ahead. finish your tlans and then i want to talk about that for a minute. >> sure. i think it's going to be a domestic policy debate. i'm sure romney's main message is going to be, look, it doesn't have to be this way, okay? we can create jobs, we can deal with the federal deficit, and, yes, we can have a foreign policy where we stabilize these parts of the world if we'll just act in the traditions of bipartisan foreign policy since world war ii. i think tha
they have to make. >> chris: i understand that governor romney plans to make a major foreign policy speech in the next few days. do the two of you think that the president has engaged in a coverup in his and the administration's escaped explanation of what happened at the u.s. consulate in benghazi? >> i will let others decide that. there are republicans and democrats in congress calling for an investigation as we need to have. response was slow. confused. inconsistent. they first said it was a youtube video and spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist are attack. if this was one tragic incident that would be a tragedy in and of itself. the problem it is part of a bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is literally unraveling before our eyes on the tv screens. mitt romney is going to lay out a different vision for foreign policy. one that is a policy of american strength versus what i would articulate or say the president's policy is one of weakness. we are seeing the ugli fruits of the obama foreign policy unravel around the world on our tv screens. syria
unraveling of the obama administration's foreign policy. >> this was a terrorist attack on 9/11 that took the life of a united states ambassador, an american ambassador. this is serious stuff. americans deserve the truth on what happened. >> greta: so u.n. ambassador rice resign? earlier former secretary of defense donald rumsfeld went on the secretary. mr. secretary, nice to see you, sir. >> thank you. good to be with you. >> greta: there are many calls for ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, to resign. she has the backup of the secretary of state and the president, but there are calls for her to resign after going on all the talk shows and pushing this youtube video as the reason, the cause. your thoughts, sir? >> well, that's really up to the president and ambassador as far as i'm concerned. i think that the president can nominate who he wants, and the senate confirmed her. and she's the ambassador while she's there. i watched the presentation. and i thought it was amazing that someone in her position would go on with that degree of certainty, that fast, and that authoritiatively and b
is not being -- that his foreign policy is working instead of the fact that it seems to be unraveling as we watch the world scene. we see that country after country -- i don't know how many it's been, 15 or 20, where the people have been burning american flags, have been burning pictures of the president of the united states, have been attacking embassies in one way or another, demonstrating an opposition to the united states and to the policies that this president has put forward. and that's got to be disturbing, but you're in the middle of a political campaign, so it makes the administration look bad. my impression is that they're trying to spin things in a way that will mute the difficulties we face in the world, and they're serious difficulties. >> greta: how do you describe his foreign policy? >> i think that the foreign policy of this administration, for 3 1/2, 4 years now, has been one of a step back. the phrase that came out of the white house, to leads from behind, which you can't lead from behind. leaders lead from the front. the economic management of our country has told the wor
foreign policy advisor. welcome to you both. let me start with you, p.j. crowley. what do we do about iran and president ahmadinejad? >> well, this clearly will be one of the most compelling issues that the next president faces, either obama in a second term or romney in a first term. as the president said today, there's still time and space to work this diplomatically. he's put down a very firm position that iran will not have a nuclear weapon. i think governor romney actually agrees with that. >> richard, one of the problems here of course is credibility on all sides, and the reason i say that, i discussed with president clinton earlier the comparisons to iraq. here you have another bad guy in the same kind of region who everyone says has wmd or wants to, in this case, get wmd. it turned out to be not true in the case of saddam hussein. he didn't have any weapons of mass destruction. can the west afford to go into any kind of military conflict with iran, with ahmadinejad, and then discover actually all he was saying turned out to be true? >> well, first of all, piers, the evidence is not
. >> and now foreign policy has reared its head. we have first of all mitt romney and "the wall street journal" an op-ed, saying that these developments are not as president obama says, mere bumps in the road. they are major issues that put our security at risk, yet amid this upheaval our country seems to be at the mercy of events rather than shaping them, not moving them in a direction that protects our people or allies. and paul ryan just now on the laura engram radio show, saying this about afghanistan. >> that echos also what john mccain said on "morning joe" today. are they trying to change the skubts to get off -- subject to get off 47% and other missteps and perceived problems in their camp or see a real vulnerability here after benghazi in the way that the white house has handled this? >> if they see a real vulnerability andrea, it's not born out in the public data yet. look at all the data, that goes back months and months the one place where president obama has been strong is on foreign policy and his handling of terrorism. you can argue after benghazi and what's happened in the, you
your fear of the word "terrorism." obama, the white house, his whole foreign policy team, they're dealing with a completely bizarre scandal related to the attacks in benghazi, driven by the fact that they spent a week after they knew this was probably a terrorist attack insisting that it was all about an anti-muslim voe and had very little to do with terror. i'm not sure what their theory is. it's part of a broader pattern where the obama white house wants to continue george w. bush's anti-terror policies, even expand them in terms of drone strikes and so on without completely acknowledging what they're doing. but in this case, it's made them look ridiculous. it seems unnecessary. >> i've lived in the middle east and in libya. and nothing that you see is as it seems. you don't have any idea who these people r. they showed up with grenade launch easy and sophisticated weapons. but in libya today, everybody's got some. >> that's fine. you don't even have to say, this is definitely terrorism. you just don't spend a week saying, well, it's all about this video that was made in sout
obama's foreign policy in a blistering speech, congressman ryan comparing the anti-american violence in the middle east to the 1979 attack on the u.s. embassy and hostage taking in tehran. he says president obama's foreign policy is to blame. rnc chair reince priebus joins us. nice to see you, sir. >> hey. he's right. you blue at barack obama, not only did he make a whole host of promises in this country that he didn't fulfill -- remember back in 2007, it was barack obama who made the sales pitch to our country balls of his background, living in indonesia, in a muslim country, that he was going to bring a special type of diplomacy to northern africa and the middle east. now we're seeing the results of barack obama. now, he's the guy that -- that said that mitt romney was shooting first and aiming later when mitt romney criticized the fact that barack obama had to walk back the statements made from an embassy in egypt. now the media is fixated on asking questions about that, but they should be asking questions to barack obama as to why would you as president of the united states have
in afghanistan and we have 68,000 troops there now. this is an entire foreign policy discussion we continue to have to define our enemies and to really know who we're facing and how to win. why are we still having this discussion? why is this so difficult to do? >> the biggest nightmare, the taliban is for us to not leave the region, to have a partnership with the afghan people past 2014. my hope we would withdraw most of our troops in 2014. leave 15 or 20,000 behind to aid the afghan army to make sure there is never a chance for the taliban to take the country over militarily. they know that. what are they trying to do? they're trying to break the partnership apart, the taliban. jenna: would you take the troops and put them in libya and go after the people that murdered our ambassador? >> i would work with the libyan government and the libyan people to have a joint operation to go after the terrorists. in afghanistan i would tell the taliban, you will never come back in power through the use of force. we'll never let this place become a safe haven for terrorists. we'll withdraw a troops su
house so reluctant to call it terrorism? some are seriously questioning the president's foreign policy. you will be surprised who they are. >> he does not understand american exceptionalism. he does not believe that america should lead. and all of these things flow from that. ♪ you do ♪ something to me ♪ that nobody else could do martha: well it was a heroes welcome for the nfl's real referees. watch. >> the regular officials are back. this was the scene an hour ago as they came out of the tunnel to a standing ovation. martha: this is great, right? did you see, look at this. hello, we're home. we're back. they returned to the field as they said there. standing ovation at last night's baltimore-ravens, cleveland browns game. the lead referee said it was good to be back. the cheers from the baltimore crowd quickly turned to boos. when the refs made a call ends if the home team. things were pretty much back to normal. there was no headline making gaffe like the touchdown call by the replacements as we like to call them during monday's green bay-seattle game. bill: i thought they wou
of his foreign policy. we can't have the truth about his overall failure as a president at anything. >> greta: and the hits keep coming and fast. former new hampshire governor john sununu ratchets it up, saying president obama is absolutely lazy and detached from his job. governor sununu joins us. nice to see you, governor. >> good to be here. how are you? >> greta: very well. very tough words. can you defend them? because that's very biting words. >> sure. look, one of the key responsibilities of a president is to keep up with the intelligence data that's coming in, what's going on around the world. this president has skipped about 60% of his personal contact presidential daily briefings, the pdb. that document he skims on his ipad is a summary. the briefings that come over, the experts that come over to follow in detail what's coming up on, this president thinks he's so smart he doesn't have to go through that. he thinks he doesn't need to put the extra work in for going through that process. that's why i say he's lazy and detached and unfortunately ambassador stevens suffered the
the critical role of the presidency particularly with a foreign policy crisis, with so many questions about management in the middle east when you have a key united nations gathering, not to meet with world leaders, including netanyahu at a time with so much concern over iran? >> this president has been, obviously, in constant contact throughout these four years with world leaders. megyn: joining me now, brad blakeman, former deputy assistant to president bush, and dick harpootlian, chairman of the south carolina democratic party. welcome back. now we see some of the senior advisers and some tough questioning put to them, in particular about a subject we've talked about on this show, and that is whether it was appropriate for the commander in chief, you know, within 24 hours of this assassination, first time since '79 a u.s. ambassador was assassinated plus three other americans, to go out to vegas on a campaign event, brad? >> well, look, this is not in keeping with their narrative, megyn, that usama's dead, and gm is alive and well. usama's dead, but al-qaeda's alive and well and killing
when i was in the presidential campaign with jimmy carter we were not allowed to bring foreign policy in, what i said about the president going to las vegas while the consulate was still smolders and goes off for a fundraiser and people would have been crucified. i remember after the seizing of the hostage in '79 when myself and other top members members of the campaign handful of us begged him to campaign we were in a tight race with ted contend. he absolutely refused. i need to be here. i can't do this on the road. >> bill: president obama's decision to go it vegas is obvious. >> but also this narrative to put out a narrative when you know differently as we had heard. >> bill: who put it out. >> the white house. look, you have a national security advisor who was a politician and a political operative tom donilin who was also the person. and the white house susan rice was not in the line of what was she doing out sunday doing five shows? she is not in the chain of command on this. >> bill: somebody did it. >> somebody told her why do d. they keep promoting the taped story. it was ups
have shown that barack obama is losing a little bit in foreign policy and they seem to sense maybe there's an opportunity there. here he is criticizing the president for his handling of the libyan consulate attack. >> i think there have been a number of members in the administration, including state department who said this was a terrorist attack. the white house and the president are continuing not to admit what their own administration is saying, and i think it's pretty clear that they haven't wanted to level with the american people. >> the campaign obviously things they can get some traction on that. do you think they can? >> i thank can because on this case the facts are kind of on his side. i mean the obama administration's reaction to the libyan attack, specifically blaming it on the video for ore a week really wasn't a fine moment for him. he should level with the american people. if you don't know anything, don't say anything. he can get traks. he made some missteps and so he was unable to take vax of that as much as he could. but he definitely can do so in the future. >>
handling his foreign policy correctly with respect to is ralph. >> sufficient and respectful to the jewish community. >> right. with respect specifically to his support for israel. then he said, well, i eventually met with president obama, and the very much solicited my support. i decided to support him again. >> your briefing it too quickly. >> i want to step in here because it was apparently just last week that you delivered a speech at a synagogue. today in michael good ones column i continue that discussion. the new york post. >> and this is a discussion in which your yet again critical of the obama administration. >> i have never seen a perfect candidate, and that never had a perfect and it. i wasn't perfect. and i will always speak out. but if you read the article today, my other utterances, it has always been stated that i am still on the obama train. i will explain why. >> we would definitely like you to do that. first specifically at think would you address last week was the question of the red line. >> not so much the red. >> tell us what you said last week. >> okay. i was incens
know on our website, cnn.com/opinion, you posed these foreign policy questions to barack obama. number one, can you tell us specifically what the afghan troop surge accomplished? and this, can you guarantee that iran will not have acquired a nuclear weapon by the time you finish a second term in office? david frum, foreign policy seems to be one of the president's strengths, at least that is what some of these polls indicate. of the two questions we just showed, some of the questions you posed here in this ten questions for obama to answer piece, which is likely to be toughest for the president to answer and why? >> all right, well, i put foreign policy questions at the top, that's so core to a president's responsibilities, domestic, occupy the second half of the list. the tougher question would be the afghanistan question. this is the president's probably single largest scale foreign policy decision, the bin laden raid, a tough call and he's made many other decisions both public and secret. but he -- he campaigns strongly in 2008 oninding down the iraq war and escalating up the afghan
. can any of these foreign policy questions and whether or not the administration bungled the response after the attacks, the horrible tragedy in benghazi, or the israeli relationship and whether mitt romney is correct that the administration has thrown israel under the bus, can any of these foreign policy questions come into it or does this have to be under the format strictly domestic policy. >> i think only if chip herrer asks the question. if romney were to launch an attack on libya or launch an attack on the israeli question, he would look like he was trying to score political points in a debate where he's supposed to be talking about the economy. one of the rules i have for the debates you don't fight with the moderator and you don't invade the other person's space. >> a violation of the newt gingrich rule which was to completely go after maria bartiromo and john harwood at the cnbc debate in michigan and make -- make them the target. >> he was looking for right wing base voters who hate the media. i don't think that's the situation here. when you fight with the moderator and som
